3 Reasons to Consider a Tankless Water Heater in Boston This Spring


Waking up on a frigid Boston morning is no fun for anyone, but it’s certainly worse when the hot water heater is broken and you’re forced to shower in ice water. If you got through this winter with an aging water heater and avoided this terrible morning disaster, then kudos to you. However, if you’re water heater is getting up there in years, you may want to consider replacement this spring. The installation of a tankless water heater in Boston this spring could mean added benefits next winter. Here’s why:

  1. Reliability: Let’s face it, as appliances grow older, they become more likely to fail. If your water heater is getting up there in years, a host of issues could be plaguing the unit, from cracks in the tank to sediment build up killing the efficiency of the unit. Since tankless water heaters have fewer parts and don’t use a large water tank to store hot water, they’re reliability is increased. Traditional water heaters can last an average of 10 years. Tankless units can last much longer if maintained, helping avoid that ice shower on a January morning in Boston.
  1. Improved Efficiency: Traditional water heaters work hard to keep water heated in the tank, and if not used properly, can cost you in energy bills. Additionally, as units grow older, efficiency declines due to sediment build up and issues with the tank. Installing a tankless water heater in Boston means you won’t be spending as much on water bills, since tankless units only heat the water they need. Improved efficiency means lower energy bills, which means you’ll save money every month with a tankless water heater.
  1. Endless Hot Water: Are your relaxing showers cut short by low hot water storage in your hot water tank? In a tankless water heating unit, that’s never a problem. Since the water is heated at the moment of usage, you never need to worry about using all the water in the tank an ending up taking an ice bath. Tankless units promise to never leave you out in the cold when hot water is all you need.

Installing a tankless water heater in Boston is a smart move for homeowners with aging water heating units looking to improve reliability and efficiency. If it’s time to install a tankless water heater in your home, call Cranney Home Services to update your home’s water heating system.
